Uruguay denies cold feet on taking Guantanamo detainees

Uruguay denied that it had delayed taking in six detainees from the US military prison at Guantanamo, saying no date for the transfer had been set yet. Uruguayan President Jose Mujica announced in March that his country had agreed to take detainees from the prison on human rights grounds, helping his US counterpart Barack Obama fulfill his long-delayed promise to close the controversial jail. Diego Canepa, an assistant secretary in Mujica’s office, denied the report, which cited Obama administration officials. He also denied the newspaper’s claim that US Vice President Joe Biden had called Mujica in August “pressing him to resettle the men.”
